“Observe how the thought pattern of worry blocks access to peace, and therefore to your true self.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I
I came from a long line of worriers. My grandmother said I came by my worry “honestly.” Only she, my grandmother, in four generations, remained peaceful and calm.
I do know that this quotation from Choose Only Love is right on. All is not lost, though, for I have made great strides to eliminate worry—just using thought stoppage, silently saying “Stop!,” when I start to fret.
We all want to come to know our true self. And this quotation tells us we can’t do that if we are caught up in the fruitless process of worrying. Peace is our birthright. Worry is a holdover from the ego.
Ask for peace today. Ask for peace every day. We can change the habits of a lifetime if we put our mind and heart to it. Help will arrive.
